IMPROVING OMAHA STREETS
Great Local Activity in Paving Follows the
Koturn of Prosperity.
MILES OF NEW ASPHALT TO BE PUT DOWN
Work Alreadr Commenced on Some
of tlic Mo t BxtcnMlve Contracts ,
and the Preliminaries to Other *
Hnve All Ileen Settled.
The continual rains have put a temporary
atop on paving operations , but with the ad
vent of settled clear weather the contrac
tors are ready to begin work in earnest
and the members of the Doard of Public
Works expect thaf. within another week as-
pbalt will bo going into the Btreets In half
a dozen-different places. The paving bonds
that were issued last month nro still held
by the city. Hayes & Sons of Chicago have
until next Tuesday to take the bonds and
pay for them , otherwise the bonds will bo
turned over to tbo paving contractors who
bavo signified their willingness to take
them nt par. The contractors will go ahead
with their work as though the bonds had
been sold , the estimates will bo. allowed as
usual and the warrants turned over. The
only difference will bo that Instead of redeeming
dooming the warrants in cash the city
treasurer will issue bonds to the amount of
the warrants and the contractors
T lll bold tbe bonds until the
war is over. nnd they can bo
disposed of at a reasonable figure. In this
-way the paving bill will not be delayed nnd
it is believed that th.a contractors will bo
able to dispose of the bonds at R premium
that will bo sufficient to compensate them
for having their money tied up in the mean
The active resumption of paving means
KOOcVdeal to the city , as well as to the hun
dreds of men who will bo employed. There
Are more districts now ready to pave than
ive existed at any ono tlmo In recenUyears
In addition to these , there nro a number of
additional districts that have been more re
cently created nnd In which the pavement
is practically assured as soon na the red tape
procedure necessitated by the charter Is
completed. In a number of the districts in
which the contracts have already been let
the preliminary work has been considerably
advanced and the asphalt can bo laid at a
rapid rate. The board is anxious to have
as much work completed before the opening
ot the exposition as possible and particularly
the streets in the vicinity of tbe
exposition grounds. In any case
there will bo enough paving In
progress this summer to glvo exposition vis
itors a very effective object lesson to the
effect that Omaha Is very much alive aside
from the enterprise that may be incidental
to the big show.
Work Already Provided For.
The aggregate amount ot paving that Is
to be done this year is somewhat extra
ordinary. Tbo districts have been created
during the winter and contracts have ac
cumulated until there Is work enough
nhead to keep things on tbo boom during
the entire season. Ouo or two small dis
tricts have already been paved with brick ,
but the bulk of the pavement that will bo
laid this year is asphalt , which the city
authorities consider the most ornamental
and durable material that can be used un
der ordinary conditions. Tbo prices range
from $1.1S 'to $1.24 per yard , the lowest
for which any considerable amount ot as
phalt baa ever been laid in any city.
The biggest improvement of ( ho year will
be the new pavement on Sixteenth street
from Pierce to Vlnton and Howard to Leav-
aworth , on which Hugh Murphy baa al-
ready begun work. The ( wo districts Include
over 26,000 yards , exclusive ot the surface i
> etween the street railway tracks , and when
t is completed there will bo an unbroken
( no of asphalt from Locust street to Vln-
on , with the exception of the viaduct and
.he single black of stone between Farnam
and Douglas streets. J. D. Smith is get-
Ing ready to pave Farnam street from
Thirty-sixth to Fortieth , Sherman avenue
'rom ' Locust to Wlrt , Twenty-fourth street
'rom Patrick avenue to Lake and Thlrty-
: blrd street from Lcavenworth to Mason ,
lie also has the contract for paving Wirt
street from Sherman avenue to Twenty-
fourth street'but this , with one or two
other contracts , has been held up by tbo
city council until the additional Intersection
bonds are disposed of.
Additional districts that are to be' paved
this year comprise Dodge street from Six-
tcenth to Seventeenth streets. Capitol avo-
nuo from Sixteenth to Eighteenth. Twenty-
fifth street from Indiana avenue to Cumlng ,
Twenty-sixth avenue from Half-Howard
street to St. Mary's avenue , Half-Howard
street from Thirty-sixth to Thirty-eighth
and Jackson street from Sixteenth to Seven"I
teenth. In the latter case the petition
to designate the material has not been tiled ,
but P. E. Her , who owns a majority of the
abutting property is anxious to have the
street paved with asphalt , and so , in case the
petition is not on hand when the thirty
days expire , the mayor and council will
designate that material and the contract will
be let at once.
The new gutters on Sixteenth street , from
Douglas to Izard , Involve comparatively lit
tle expense , but they will make a tremend
ous Improvement in the appearance of that
thoroughfare. The final ordinance has been
passed and tbo Doard of Public Works will
advertise for bids. The idea IB to build up
the present stone gutters to n point about
Biz inches below the curb nnd do away with
the deep depressions that now disfigure the
street and cut off half a dozen feet of traf-
flc surface on each side ; .
Improvement * In Proipeet.
Aside from the above Improvements that
are regarded ns assured ordinances contem
plating a largo amount of additional pavlns
are now pending or waiting for petitions.
An ordinance has been passed providing for
extending the Twenty-fourthstreetpavement
to Plnkney street , and while the first effort
to secure a petition was abortive , it IB be
lieved that it can bo obtained this year.
Propositions to pave Twenty-sixth avenue
from Farnam to Douglas streets. Twenty-
sixth street from Popplcton avenue to Woolworth -
worth avenue. Thirty-fourth street from
Harnoy to St. Mary'a avenue , Douglas street
from Twenty-fifth avenue to Twenty-sixth
aveauo and Tenth street from Lincoln ave
nue to Dancroft street nro In the same situa
tion. The ordinance ordering Nineteenth
street paved from Douglas to Dodge
waa passed last winter , and as
this district la within the pre
scribed distance from the court
bouse , the mayor and council have the
power to order It paved regardless of pro-
tests. The property owners have succeeded
In staving off action so far , but there is a
strong sentiment in the council that favors
going ahead with the Improvement eomo
time during tbe coming season.

and Havre * , Who Have Died
The large court room In the court house
was crowded with attorneys ol the Douglas
county bar. who mot to pay their last tribute
toS. the memory of the lato-E. C. Lane , lien
S. Adams and Patrick 0. Hawes , all of whom
dlod wlthtn the last few days. The meetingw
was presided over by Judges Slabaugh , Fawn
cott and Dickinson. The committees ap-
pointed to draft resolutions reported and
the reports were ordered spread upon the I
records of the court and copies ordered sent j I I
to the families of the deceased.
In reporting upon the death of B. C. Lane ,
R. B. Montgomery pronounced an eloquent
eulogy , saying that he had known the deceased -
ceased J personally for a number of years. I |
He had known him as a loving husband and
a . kind father a man who was upright and
of sterling honesty.
T. J. Nolan of the committee appointed
o report resolutions on the death of Den S.
Adams said that In the death of Mr. Adams
the bar had lost a valuable member and the
state had lost a most respected citizen.
Lee S. Estelle , chairman of the committee
assigned the duty of presenting resolutions
on the death of Patrick O. Hawes. said thut
he had known the deceased for more than
twenty-six years and that during that time
the acquaintance bad grown until It had be
come one of the warmest friendship. Patrick
O. Hawes was described as a man of un
questioned honesty , generous nnd always
willing to help a friend with either advice
or money. He was described as a man who
always possessed the courage of-his convic
tions and always prepared to advocate the
cause that he believed was right , even it
the whole world was against htm.
Charles J. Greene paid an eloquent tribute
to the memory of the three attorneys. Ho
knew Patrick O. Hawes the better of theE
three and always found him a gentleman
a man who was ready at any time to respond
to the request of the poor and the oppressed.
Frank T. Ransom said ho had known
Patrick 0. Hawes for more than twenty years
nnd had always
as a man of

as- one of the
honest men of the country , a man who was
noble and generous.
J. H. Van
Duscn knew all UKSP of the at
torneys , but knew
as nn In
timate friend and neighbor. He was a roan i
of deeds , and not of words. In his death i
South Omaha had lost nno of its best citi
zens , and the community at laigo had lost
a man of sterling worth , while a wife had
lost a loving husband and the children a
kind and Indulgent father.
Charles S. Elgutter knew that Patrick O.
Hawes was a loving husband and that ho
clung to his wife as the ivy cllngj to the
I. R. Andrews know all of the deceased
well , and said that ha could approve all that
bad been said by bis brother attorneys.
Judge Slabaugh spoke feelingly , saying
that ho knew the three attorneys. He first
met Patrick O. Hawes in 1835 , and had al-
waya found him ready and willing to help
r i j i rnr i
I" young attorneys with , his advice. The
j judge said that Attorney Lane way hk part *
'nor In business some years ago , and lhat < jo
1 had always found him a man of sterling
qualities and of unusual uprightness.

T. 'L. O'Donncll said that he knew all
three of the attorneys very well , and that
iu ' their death the county had lost three good i
citizens and the bar three bright members ,
j Regarding Patrick O. Hawes , the speaker
said ; that he regarded him as one of the
country's noblemen , a man against whose j I
integrity nnd honesty not a word could bo j
T. J. Mahoney , In speaking of the death
of the three attorneys , said that he knew
all of them very well. They were all
1 modest and unassuming and made no boasts
of their work. Mr. Mr.honey said that he
Mtnow ( Den S. Adnms flist when he was a
I young man located In Stuart , la. , where ho
\ < was an editor and also a practicing attor-
Iney. There ho was respected by both young
j j and old. That acquaintance had ripened

nut. ' YATES ON THE : iio.vu ISSUE.
j S I Defend * IllH Pcmltlnn In Favor of Iii-
tlic National Ilonilril Debt.
j OMAHA , May 7. To the Editor of The
| Dec , : In an editorial in last Saturday's
j Issue : of The Dee you reply to my communl
cation * concerning the necessity for a bond
Issue 1 for the prosecution of the Spanish
war , and what you say in opposition to my
views Is embraced In the following extracts ;
From the bondholder's standpoint the posi
tion of Mr. Yatcs may commend Itsrlf.
From the standpoint of the taxpaylng cltl-
zrn who has no Interest In the perpetuation
of a bonded debt It appears Indefensible.
With $80.000,000 of gold lying idle in the
treasury In excess of the $100,000,000 gold
reserve and with at Jeast $50,000,000 In sight
as receipts of the Internal revenue war
tax before the end of the calendar year ,
would not a national bond Issue of $500-
000.000 , $300,000,000 , or any other sum be a
monstrous Imposition upon the wealth pro
ducers of the country ?
The suggestion that the Interest burden
on $300,000.000 of bonds would be trivial ,
as there would be no need of levying taxes
for a sinking fund , Is nothing more nor less
than a proposition to create a permanent
bonded debt , reversing the policy of the
nation since its birth.
The estimate given by mo ns the probable
cost of the war was based upon your own
figures of $150,000,000 to January 1 , 189 ! ) .
Wo all hope that peace will soon bo
restored , In which case there need bo no
great concern as to the provision to bo made
for the expenditure already incurred , but
whatever may hove been the divergent views
entertained as to the necessity for the war , I
am quito sure that we are now as a people
practically unanimous In the opinion that It
must bo prosecuted to an honorable and
satisfactory conclusion , whether It costs
eventually 150 or 1,000 millions of dollars.
Your fling at the bondholders and consequent
quent Intimation that I as a banker spoaU
as the representative of a class who have
an Interest In the question which Is Inimical
to that of other taxpayers , would bo expected
If it was the utterance of a populUt , to
whom banks and bondholders arc a continual
bugbear , but It sounds queer coming from
a republican newspaper whoso party In the
house of representatives only a few days
ago voted unanimously In favor of this bond
issue thereby sustaining this stand
point" which you think so wrong.
.This circumstance of Itself , I
admit , makes no difference as
j' ' the real merits of the question you i
deserve credit for holding to an Independent t
opinion but It Is not good argument to
appeal to popuHstlc prejudices for support
In your conclusions.
You know as well ns I do that the bankers
and bondholders of the United States have
no special Interest In the matter and as a
class nro as disinterestedly patriotic as any
other body of their fellow-citizens but even i
If this were not the case , their special In
terest , if It existed , should not bo permitted
to Influence an adverse conclusion which
might produce disastrous consequences.
There Is nothing In my communication to
indicate that I favor a permanent national
debt on the contrary , I stated exactly the
reverse. I alluded to the Immense debt In
curred during the civil war ( uhlch by a mis
print , you publish mo as stating was $300-
000,000 , when I wrote $3.000.000.000) ) , and
showed that within twenty-five years from
the close of the war the entire sum was
practically liquidated , and that during the
greater portion of the time when It was beIng -
Ing paid the country had not experienced
the burden of the excessive and onerous tax
ation which usually attends n war condi
tion In every countly. The largest expendl-
turo estimated for the present war Is a
bagatelle compared with the cost of the civil
war , especially when the resources of the
country now are compared with what ex
isted then , and referring to the Issue of
bonds , now proposed , I said : "The resulting
surplus from slightly more than ordinary J !
taxation with the Improved trade conditions
cure to come would retire the bonds within i
a reasonable time. " So far from an issue
of bonds being "a monstrous Imposition upon
the wealth producers , " I do not hcsltato to
say that should a large sum of money be
required , which now seems certain , It would
bo a monstrous Imposition upon these wealth
producers If bonds are not Issued , and in
stead ( of that the decision should be reached
to squeeze from them by early taxation the
The business of the country Is Just recov
ering from a great financial depression. The
times nro not yet too easy with our wealth-
producers , and there are few of our business
men who would not say that It would b3
better to accept the money from the capital
ists ( among whom must bo Included all
classes of bank depositors ) , who have it to
spare and nro willing to loan It nt the small
Interest rate of from 2 % to 3 per cent , rather
than It should now bo taken by taxation
from their business.
In my opinion there Is no occasion at this
tlmo for the multifarious taxation already
proposed in congress , which will bring an
unnecessary realization of the war Into al
most every household but which is all
necessary If your $50,000,000 , before the end
of the calendar year , is to bo realized , and
which amount must bo still further In
creased If the expenditure to the present
date Is to bo obtained In this manner.
Dut you also say that there Is a large sum
available now In the treasury that there
are there $80,000,000 of gold In excess of the
$100,000,000 reserve , and that this sum , with
the taxes you suggest , will meet the exigen
cies of the situation. This Is an important
statement worthy of consideration , If only
on account of the magnitude of the figures
given , and If It Is correct , It would seem to
dispose of the question. Dut let us Investi
gate the matter , and fortunately wo now
have to deal with real and exact figures , and
Considerable confusion exists In the public
mind concerning the treasury balance , and
this is my apology for going Into the ques
tion somewhat in detail. I am entirely
awnro that the editor of The Dee fully un
derstands It , but your reference to this sub
ject in the editorial under review Is by no
means calculated to remove any existing
The balance reported In treasury state
ments represents all the funds In the treas
ury after Its Immediate liabilities are paid.
It has been the custom nnd practice since
1879 to maintain $100,000,000 of this balance
In gold , which Is termed the gold reserve ,
but Ihcro Is no distinct legislative enact
ment which authorizes the special setting
opart of n gold fund , except where It may bo
Inferred by the act of congress which de
clares It to be the policy of the government
to maintain the equality of Its different cur-
rencles. The actual reserve or surplus Is the
total balance , whether composed of gold or
any other kind of money. Every large and
Important government must maintain some
surplus funds in Its treasury to meet con
tlngenclcs , and , while no ono can say exactly
what this should bo In the United States , It
has been the practice for many years to
keep It not far from $200,000,000. Going
back for twenty years wo find that In Juno ,
1878 , the balance was $221.015.581. In the
following year , when specie payments were
established , It reached $513,455,671 , and until
September , 1890 , It never went below $200-
000,000. After 1S90 It was lets and on June
30 , 1893. It was $122,402,290. At these last
figures the danger signal was raised and the
small treasury balance had no Insignificant
Influence among the causes which provokei
the panic of 1893.
Since 1893 we have learned from actual cx-
pcrlcnco tbe necessity and Importance o
maintaining an adequate surplus.
As I have stated , tbo balance Juno 30 , 1S93
was $122,462,290 ; on April 1 , 1898 , * I
was $226,166,943 , showing an apparent In
crease of $103,704,653 during that period
Dut , as a fact , there was a deficit between
these dates of $189,777,242 and If the reserve
bad not been reinforced froai the sale o
' ends during President Cleveland's admlnl9
ration to the extent of $293,481,895 , not onlj
ould the entire balance of 1S93 have illsap-
eared gold reserve and nil but the gov-
rnmcnt would also have boon without fundt
o pay Its current obligations to the extent
Tills occurred In n time of profound peaci
what may bo expected as of possible oc-
urrenco In tlmo of war ? Secretary Gag <
as given It as his opinion that the ordlnarj
ovcnucs will be decreased on account oi
ho war , and they have not been sufficient
or sometime past to equal tbo current or-
Unary expenditures which go on the same ,
ovonuo or no revenue.
In regard to the present war requirement !
if the government wo have now a state *
iiiont from a man who cannot make a mis *
ako when finances are the subject. Secro-
ary Gage , in an argument on Tuesday bo-
ore the senate committee on finance , said
bat tbo war expenses for the next tw *
months would not only take the entire bal
ance in the treasury except the gold ru-
crve , but would also take $30,000,000 ot
hat reserve In other words , the balance
n the treasury would be reduced to $70-
This , I think , clearly proves what I state *
u my communication "that the $50,000,000
already expended has reduced the lur-
ilus which must always bo maintained for
contingencies to limits that It would not
be safe or expedient to further contract. "
Your further statement that oven If tb *
war should develop into nn Interminable
conflict , costing hundreds of millions , "a
bond Issue would bo a doubtful expedient"
when by the establishment of postal aav-
ngs banks the government could "borrow
nil the money It may require from th *
common people , Instead of building up bond
syndicates and bank combines , " comes with
ilngular Inconsistency from ouo who , only
mmcdintely before this statement , had in
dicated his emphatic objection to a porma *
I do not care at this time to discuss the
postal savings bank question there will be
ample tlmo for this long before the possi
bility occurs of such nn enactment. Out
ono thing Is quite evident , such a system
must carry with It a permanent doht and a
debt ot a character
which cannot bo ex
panded or contracted at the government' !
option , but on the contrary places that op
tion entirely In the hands of the depositors
who thus constitute a special class ot pub
In my communication to The Dee I ex
pressed a preference for n short tlmo or
"nt pleasure" bond , but under the existing
circumstances no sound objection can bo
offered to the long tlmo bonds contemplated
by the house bill. If the treasury finances
will hereafter permit the appropriation , ex
isting bonds to the extent of $139,000,000
may be redeemed by 1904 and In 1907 the
4 per cent bonds bccomo due , which aggre
gate over $500,000,000.
My regret , as before expressed , Is that
the existing political situation prevents ilia
government from making Its bond IBSUO
definitely and distinctly payable In gold , by
which means It Is deprived of the full ad
vantage Ita high credit and standing deserve -
servo In tbo terms obtained , but this la
the penalty wo must pay for our f.nance
politics. HENHY W. YATE3.
